City of Madison Winter Activities

Latest update from Madison’s Parks. Can’t wait to get the ski’s out!

Sledding – Sledding hills are open and in good condition. Elver Park Warming Shelter will be open for concessions on Saturday and Sunday (weather dependent).

Ski Trails – Staff is packing trails and setting tracks at Elver Park and Odana Hills Golf Course today. Please note that only the main loop at Odana Golf Course will have tracks set today. Tomorrow staff intends to pack and set tracks at Turville Point and South Cherokee. We will keep the public notified as trails are open for skiing. Ski rentals will be available on Saturday and Sunday at both Elver Park and Odana Hills Golf Course.

Ice Skating – The ice rinks are snow covered and continue to have dangerously thin ice conditions. While the snow is great for skiing, it has an insulating effect on the ice, turning it into slush. Public is advised to stay off the ice. Staff will continue ice maintenance as conditions allow.
